Movie Matinee Lars and the Real Girl

February 23 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Lars and the Real Girl

How have you learned to navigate times of challenge, suffering, and illness, of confusion, and darkness? Jesus taught us to respond to even the most difficult situations with authenticity and compassion, being fully present to the reality that confronts us, being true to what we know is the right thing to do, and being openly loving to those who need our support.

Join us for a viewing and discussion of Lars and the Real Girl, starring Ryan Gosling and Emily Mortimer. Discover the magical and graced reality we can create, were we to “respond with compassion and tolerance,” in the words of screenwriter Nancy Oliver, to bring healing, hope, and new life to even the most impossible situation.

This program will be led by Celeste Calabotta, a member of the OLC Retreat Team.

Watch a trailer.

Each participant will receive a boxed lunch to enjoy during the movie.
